Let's say you have DocMan and JACLPlus installed, and your friendly web developer has already set up some groups for you. You would probably ask,
And your friendly web developer would reply.... In your site the two main places to create
groups, define each group's permissions, and add users to groups
So, to put it together, you'll probably want to keep the
current per-committee Joomla categories with their public access
permissions as a way of organizing the public content items for each
committee. When you need to create a content item that is
private to one committee, remove the "Public" and
"Registered" access levels from that committee's JACL
group, and add the appropriate users to that group. Then create
a new Joomla category (in "Content - Category Manager")
called something like "MTW - Private," and set its "Access
Level" to the committee's name ("MTW Committee").
Then create the content item, and assign it to that category ("MTW
- Private"). This will give members of the committee
access to view the content items in that category.
Whew! That was a lot for your friendly web developer to say. After digesting it for a while, you might also ask him,
To which thankfully, there's a simple answer--Yes!
Just add the user to each DocMan and JACLPlus group they need to belong
to, as described above.
